Haywire -- a high-tension action thriller -- stars Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, Michael Fassbender, Channing Tatum and was directed by Steven Soderberg. Yet all anyone wants to talk about is the film's lone female: Gina Carano.
"That girl is a star, just you wait and see," is what Ewan McGregor told ETonline about his co-star, a mixed martial arts fighter that Soderberg plucked from the ring to star in this, her first movie.
And now, ETonline has two exclusive images from Haywire (out January 20, 2012) that show exactly why Carano's risk-taking tendencies are perfectly at home in this nail-biter about a black ops super soldier who seeks payback after she's betrayed by her agency during a mission.
A plot that McGregor believes will put bruised butts in seats: "The movie is amazing, but at the end of the day, who doesn't like to watch a girl kicking some ass?"
